OSA WILD - SUSTAINABLE TOURISM
OSA WILD, located in Puerto Jiménez, in the Osa Peninsula, is the first 100% Costa Rican
tourism office focused specifically on promoting community rural tourism.
Through OSA WILD, foreign tourists as well as nationals will be able to enjoy the closest
experiences to daily Costa Rican life reality in one of the most beautiful and wild places in the country: the Osa
We offer unique experiences at a very low cost. The diverse family projects go from a completely natural
retreat amid mountains, trees, waterfalls and animals, to the preparation of Costa Rican dishes, fishing, milking,
use of a mill, and the simple, humble and beautiful sharing with Costa Rican families.
Besides promoting community rural tourism, OSA WILD constantly works to offer a green
destination. These important Costa Rican family projects have become a priority for the country’s
tourism economy. The visit to projects or properties that are able to sustain their necessities in a healthy way
ensures us that these places will be around for a long time. Even more valuable is the opportunity offered
to discover the culture, the art and living of our people.
By supporting community rural tourism, you not only know where your money is being invested but also shows
fair, honest and above all, truly sustainable business practices.
OSA WILD's review on
"Get out a pen and underline this twice: Osa Wild is the way to connect with Corcovado park and Osa. Although
it's a relatively young outfit, it's just what the area so desperately needed: a resource for travelers to connect
with community-oriented initiatives that go to the heart of the real Osa through homestays, farm tours and
sustainable local cultural exchanges. Of course it also offers the more typical stuff like kayaking tours and
guided trips through Corcovado (in fact Ifi, who's running the show, is a university-trained biologist and the
best guide we've met in the region), but its focus on sustainability, environmental protection and community
development leave it in a league of its own. It also sets up volunteer programs and rents tents and stoves for
trips into the park. Amazing!"
